After taking visits to Washington State, Oregon and Iowa State, Moore, a standout at Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster, decided to give new Washington State head coach Ken Bone and his staff a verbal commitment.
"When he came to Brewster his goal was to play in the Pac 10," Brewster head coach Jason Smith said. "He just said he felt more comfortable and at home there. He liked the people at Washington State and the players and he's played AAU and high school basketball out there."
According to Smith, Moore knew Bone back when he was an assistant coach at Washington. To go with the interest from Oregon and Iowa State, Memphis and UCLA attempted to get him on campus this coming weekend, but Moore opted to end his recruitment instead.
Moore's final high school season was a bit up and down. After some early season struggles, he rebounded to average 11 points and nearly five assists a game. According to Smith, Moore was their most consistent player down the stretch.
"I was playing him more off the ball at the beginning of the year and as the year progressed he played primary just the point for us," he said. "The last month and a half he was just dynamite for us. The last month of the season he was our most consistent scorer and the best perimeter player."
